Manchester Museum 4.0 stars

This museum is a treasure trove of more than 4.5 million items that promise to keep adults and children entertained all day. The 19th century University of Manchester buildings that house the museum on Oxford Road provide the perfect place to ... [more ]
Affleck's Palace 5.0 stars
Shopping - #2 of 18
Almost every city in the UK appears to have a hub for alternative fashion. While London has Camden Market and Nottingham has the old Lace Market, Manchester has Affleck's Palace. The recently refurbished four-storey structure on the corner of ... [more ]
Urbis 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #3 of 18
I usually hate museums, but I loved Urbis. It's a museum of modern life, and it kept me entertained from start to finish. Even the way they designed the building is interesting, and the whole thing is interactive from the moment you set foot ... [more ]
Manchester Opera House 4.0 stars
Opera, Theatre, Concert Hall - #4 of 18
Manchester Opera house was everything I hoped for and more. I had seen Cecilia Bartoli previously at a much larger venue and had been disappointed with the sound quality in the hall. In Manchester it was a different story. You could hear a pin ... [more ]
Manchester Art Gallery 5.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #5 of 18
A museum official hands out maps from a help desk in the entrance hall of Manchester Art Gallery where a set of grand steps leads visitors up to the next floor then the next that lead into all 21 rooms. This place is cram-packed full of more than ... [more ]
Triangle 4.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #6 of 18
Before the devastating IRA bomb of 1994, the site on which Manchester's Triangle Shopping Centre now stands was the Corn Exchange - a collection of rough and ready stalls selling vintage clothes, comics, badges and various assorted tat. The Corn ... [more ]
Lowry Centre 4.0 stars
Museum, Gallery, Exhibition - #7 of 18
The Lowry Centre, in Manchester´s Salford Quays, hosts live music and shows, but for me the main appeal is the gallery dedicated to the work of local painter L.S Lowry. When I visited, the gallery was showing an exhibition called ´Myths of the ... [more ]
Peveril of the Peak 4.0 stars
Stadium, Sports Arena - #8 of 18
In need of something to do other than relentlessly knock back alcohol, the boys insist on making a trip to the traditional bar Peveril of the Peak, in order to play a game of pool. This is a nice, friendly little pub, and you can get nice hot ... [more ]
Zero Records 4.0 stars
Shopping - #9 of 18
Located in the leafy suburb of Didsbury, Zero Records is a great little shop that also serves as a tea shop and bookstore. Selling cult film posters, rare vinyl and used books, this is a great place to come and browse. The owner will let you ... [more ]
Northern Quarter 4.0 stars
Quarter - #10 of 18
Having pretty much exhausted the drinking opportunities of the Oxford Road corridor, we head for the Northern Quarter - Manchester's cool 'boho district'. However, on our way to take a detour to St Anne's Square to pay a visit to Corbiere's - a ... [more ]
Castlefield 4.0 stars
Quarter - #11 of 18
The fast and frantic pace of life in Manchester city centre is all well and good, but there are times when you yearn for a bit of space to stretch your legs. Castlefield, a picturesque, grassy part of the city centre, is the perfect place to come ... [more ]
Manchester Evening News Arena 4.0 stars
Stadium, Sports Arena - #12 of 18
I have been to several concerts and a couple of sporting events at the MEN arena, and other than the fact that it's a huge, impersonal venue, I think it does its job really well. The one occasion when I was sitting in the very back of the ... [more ]
Manchester Town Hall 4.0 stars
City Hall - #13 of 18
Located in the City Centre, close to the shops and other amenities, Manchester's Town hall is an architecural achievement on a grand scale. It is pretty huge for a Town Hall and is very impressive to gaze upon. If you get the chane to venture ... [more ]
Palace Theatre 4.0 stars
Opera, Theatre, Concert Hall - #14 of 18
Manchester is unofficially the UK's second city, and the Palace is its flagship theatre. A huge building on Oxford Road, near the large student population, certainly does not disappoint. The shows are of the same calibre as in London's West ... [more ]
Chill Factor 3.0 stars
Other Urban Landmark - #15 of 18
The Chill Factor artificial ski slope is fun, provided you have the money to spend. Prices range from £19 for adults for a limited period on the gigantic indoor slope. Other activities include ski tobogganing and ski-ring rides. Lessons are in ... [more ]
Granada Studios Tour 3.0 stars
Park - #16 of 18
This is so much fun, especially if you are a native British person who has grown up watching ITV!! Not only can you stride down 'THE STREET' i.e. the infamous 'Coronation Street'. But you can also have fun reading the weather on camera, join in a ... [more ]
Old Trafford 3.0 stars
Stadium, Sports Arena - #17 of 18
Manchester United football team is often mockd for having more than its fair share of fans that don´t actually hail from the city, and this is reflected in the vast number of tourists who flock to the teams grounds at Old Trafford. Possibly the ... [more ]

Entertainment, Festival, Amusement Park - #18 of 18
So you don't want to talk, but you want to meet up with a mate - try Rileys Pool Hall for size. However, you'll have to find it first. The mega-table venue is tucked between the Feathers Pub and McDonald's on Barlow Moor Road. Drive past the ... [more ]
